Mocked it up with cardboard cutout then cut it out of sheet metal and put in the the rain gutter rails, real simple actually

Is that some sort of custom ram air intake? Or am I seeing things?

Today I towed a BMW across town to help one of my friends out, Hooked up my new ultra guage scanner, took my drivers side seat out and rewelded the broken bracket and changed my spark plugs and air filter and cleaned my throttle body. Tomorrow I'm going to change my oil and filter and wash it and clean out the inside.

I just did plugs and cleaned the TB/IAC myself and man did it make a noticeable difference at idle and all around drive ability! Plugs were long overdue-went with Autolite as advanced didn't carry the champions.

Put on some Bosch Icons today, $30 well spent IMO!

Got it back from an alignment today, hasn't driven this nice since it was stock. Took alot of tinkering over the last few months but finally got it driving good. In the last 2 months I have installed:

All new coil insulators
IRO front bar pin eliminators
KOR rear shock sleeve kit
IRO steering equalizer kit
JKS adjustable track bar
JKS HD tie rod w/ new tre's
JKS HD drag link w/ new tre's
JKS quick disconnects
Addco rear swaybar w/ greaseable bushings
New front sway bar bushings
Replaced IRO long arm flex joints w/ johnny joints
4 alignments (I bought a lifetime alignment from a local shop)

It's been a long frustrating, and sometimes bloody journey, but I finally got it riding as smooth as stock again. Just in time for wheeling season so I can break it again!

Post it in the classified section on the JF. You'll likely get more traffic.

That's what an urban area is. The 'hoods, ghettos, etc.
